Fire destroyed Bisbee City Hall last October, and since then, the city has been operating out of Cochise County offices. The County's Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved an agreement to let the city keep using the offices for $4,500 a month.
Bisbee City manager Robert Smith says the search for an independent location may yet involve the fire-damaged, historic City Hall.
"We want to look at all the possibilities, and what the highest and best use of the public's funding and land would be, and come up with the most effective solution for the citizens of Bisbee," he said.
The city had used City Hall since 1909. It started rebuilding the damaged interior of the structure in November, with a planned completion date of April, 2019.
